Don`t forget the Picaxe chips, good alternative for you need something "more" than what a 555 can do. :)

The Utimate BreadBoard

I will have a look and see if I have Paint Shop Pro on DVD later on this week, I don't have time to check my Archives at the minute.

Re: Sunday Brunch Show, UK Channel 4, Sunday May 27

Like someone said, maybe liz would get more airtime on this type of program. having eben on there is a bit if a coup. in the old version of the show (something for the weekend with louise redknapp) they had several girls who present the gadgets - just as badly. compared to how some things fared on ...

Re: Sunday Brunch Show, UK Channel 4, Sunday May 27

I watched from my PVR.

Just over a minute interview of Eben, the rest of the program was erm, daytime viewing fodder, to put it politely.

"Can we get the Logo off now" was rather poor end to the very short interview.

Like someone said, maybe liz would get more airtime on this type of program.

Re: Please send some boards to important key developers without CE of FCC

I like the idea of renting boards out to devs with a hefty non-return deposit fee as a way of boosting funds for the foundation.
